Access to starting point:
From highway Ljubljana - Jesenice, we go to the exit Lipce and we drive right towards Jesenice (at the traffic light left). Here in the center of the town we follow signposts for Podmežakla. When we drive through the underpass, we turn right, and nearby we can notice hockey hall. We drive additional 350 meters, when before highway underpass we notice a parking lot. Here is our starting point.
Path description:
From the parking lot, we go in underpass, on the right side of it we find first blaze. When we step through it, we notice on the left side path, which runs from the road uphill (trail blaze on asphalt). We go there, we ascend few meters and turn right (west) towards power line. The path which is at first only moderately ascending, and later more and more, after some time brings us to a crossing. Here we go left, even more steep uphill towards the south. We soon reach the forest road which through right and left turn brings us to a turn-off of cart track which is steeply ascending on the right in the direction southeast. We go there and we follow it for quite some time, meanwhile we ignore the right turn-offs of smaller shortcuts.
Winding path is occasionally ascending in zig-zags a little in the direction of east. When we are past bigger right turn, blazes point us on a narrower path on the right. Now we are turned in the direction of southwest. From here further, the path gradually in large or smaller zig-zags ascending even steeper towards the top on the left. When we come below the rocks on the left, we are already near top of plateau, and here we soon run into a crossing of marked footpaths, which means, that there are available two variants.
First is straight (direction southwest); here soon, when the steepness decreases we come on Zakop, where we run into a forest road, we turn left and we also notice monument and benches (smaller event venue). The second option is left (direction southeast), steeply uphill towards top of plateau, where we run into same road which in the direction towards the left runs towards the destination. When on flat sandy terrain (some sort of turning point) forest road ends, on the left edge of this open space we see small wooden signpost with the caption "bolnica" (hospital), where we go. After few meters, the path somehow vanishes, but if we look northern uphill, on a tree we again notice a little the sign, which pointing a little to the right. If now we continue either in this direction or straight, we come on the northern edge of plateau, where runs "panoramic" path. Here we go left and after shorter time on a tree (or two) we again run into caption "bolnica", which pointing downwards. Here we notice wooden fence by which we descend few 10 meters lower to the destination - Partisan hospital. (Carefully, - in wet dangerous for slipping!).
